Eat Great, Lose Weight

ImageEat great, lose weight.

This is not only Suzanne Somers' motto, it is the title of one of her many books that preach the Somersizing philosophy. With Eat Great, Lose Weight, dieters focus on making the right food combinations, a running theme throughout many of her books.

Somers is not stranger by any means to the weight-loss game. After struggling with her own issues for a span of more than 20 years, Somers put an end to a lifetime of fluctuating by putting food combining to work for her.

She has since created her own diet concept known as Somersizing, as well as creating more than 13 books. According to suzannesomers.com, more than 3 million have tried Somersizing.

A big proponent of food combining, Somers encourages a wide variety of foods that includes meat, chicken, seafood, veggies, fruits, grains, dairy and fats. Yet it is how the foods are eaten that matters. Of course, like any weight-loss program, she has a list of basic rules to follow.

Image1. Follow a low-carb, food-combining plan.
2. Stay away from "funky foods" such as sugar and flour.
3. Eat fruits on an empty stomach.
4. Consume proteins and fats with veggies and without carbs.
5. Eat carbs with vegetables and without fat.

Although it is a moderately low-carb program, dieters are allowed to indulge in fruits, pastas and other carbs. With more than 100 diverse recipes, dieters following the Eat Great, Lose Weight approach can expect to eat Thanksgiving Turkey with Mushroom Sausage Stuffing, French Onion Soup, Decadent Chocolate Cake and much more.

There is a good deal of variety, and people following the program can expect to see slow, steady results. There is no severe calorie restriction so dieters will never feel deprived. Although Somers swears by the power of food combining, there is no actual proof that the practice accomplishes anything concrete.
